I like to always encourage people to enjoy the little things in life. The small, passing moments are what make up most of your life in the end, and I truly believe that appreciating them is the key to happiness. Whenever you guys tell me that one of my videos has led you to notice little moments of beauty and happiness in your lives, it honestly feels like the biggest compliment. If I can make just one person feel like that I feel like I’ve fulfilled a great purpose. Every now and then I like to write these posts about ten things that make me happy right now, to remind myself to take a moment and appreciate what I have. It’s been a while since I last wrote one and as January, which wasn’t my best month, is over now I thought now would be a great time to re-visit my list.
Hello my lovely readers! How are you all doing? I’m happy to report that I’ve been feeling much better. I’m not usually one to day things like this but I’m glad to see the end of January, which hasn’t been the best for me. Right now I feel like I’m finally getting back into the swing of things and have figured out somewhat of a work/life routine. We’ve had a few sunny days this past week, which also helps a lot with feeling positive and cheerful. Even when it’s super cold out, there’s nothing like the feeling of sunshine on your face. Some videos finally went up again last week as well, which makes me feel much more satisfied with myself, haha! Let’s take a look at what I’ve been up to.
Lentil soup, dark bread and cherry tomatoes for lunch, while I’m typing up my diary. I noticed I have rather many computer shots this week, but then again I have spent the bulk of my time behind screens. I have to say I’m really happy about that, though: it feels great to be working properly again and actually getting stuff done.
Welcome to a new episode of Style Revival! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Today I’m going to pull inspiration from Tudor period beauty and fashion trends to create a modern day wearable head to toe look, including makeup, hair and outfit. Enjoy!
Roughly three months ago I decided to go off hormonal contraception and I haven’t regretted it for one second. If you’d like to read more about my reasoning behind no longer using the NuvaRing and my experience, I suggest you check out my first two posts about it HERE and HERE. My cycle is slowly becoming more regular each month which I’m really happy about, but I’ll come back to you with more detailed updates about that when I hit the six-month artificial hormone free mark. Today I’d like to share something with you that got recommended to me a few times when I talked about contraception online: the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. This book was first published in the 1980’s and has been popular among women worldwide ever since. It’s received several revisions so it’s fully up to date, and the book and method even come with an app now. Taking Charge of Your Fertility deals with cycle tracking as a natural means of both birth control and pregnancy achievement, but mostly it just provides lots of information about the female reproductive system that every woman should know. If you ask me, this is an absolute must-read.
In-between seasons is my favourite time to go shopping. There are nice sales going on but you also have access to the new collections. I did some shopping and thought I’d share what I got!
